of myself, the league of women voters of san francisco and our partner organizations the jr. league of san francisco, the university of california, san francisco and the san francisco public library, and our media partner, san francisco government television. thanks to each of you, for taking the time to inform yourself about your choices on november 6th. good evening. [ applause ] >> >> hi, i'm jane konig, a member of the league of women voters. along with the league and sfgovtv, i'm here to discuss proposition a, a ballot measure that will be before the voters on november 6th. city college of san francisco has 9 campuses in the city and serves approximately 100,000 students each year. the state has reduced funding to ccsf by core academic courses, provide work force training, provide an education that prepares students for 4 year universities, keep city college libraries and student support services open, keep technology and instructional support up to date, and offset state budget cuts. i'm here with alyssa messer, an english teacher at city college of san francisco. she's the ppt of
that money. now what is that for local 22. we can broad en it to what is in it for san francisco. supervisor avalos, 25% local hire. 50% of those will be apprentices directly here from san francisco. i don't know if there are apprentices but we are over loaded and billed with apprentices and preap presentations. this will provide 2,600 construction jobs over a three-year period. three-quarters of the time some of these apprentices can spend on that job will complete their apprenticeship. that is three-quarters of the time needed in a four-year apprenticeship they can possibly work on that single job alone. that is pension, health fund and future, security for their families and a way to stay in san francisco. i'm confident by your vote because i think this is the way to go. i think you are all progressive enough to know this is bringing jobs to san francisco. it is keeping folks, residents in san francisco. put san francisco back to work. bring warriors back home where they belong. i'm old enough to remember them playing at the cow palace that, is where i first saw them. they need to be back
another great day of san francisco sports, with the 9ers hosting the seahawks, going to beat them. hosting the cardinals in st. louis and winning game four. today we can celebrate the bid for the next super bowl in san francisco and bay area. as has been mentioned the super bowl is a world class event and deserves a world class city and world class region to host it. as a kid who grew up here in san francisco and in the fall to trek every sunday to candlestick park to watch the 49ers play, now this is such an exciting time that we get to have the chance to host the event that we only got to watch on tv for the past few decades. what an incredible time for our city. even if the super bowl's played down the road in santa clara, for us, these are the san francisco 49ers. always have been, always will be. san francisco 49er fan also be so excited and come together as a region and city behind this. it will have enormous impacts, bringing the neighborhoods together from sunset to bay view. think about the thousands of jobs. hundreds of millions of economic activity for our city. more importantly
that we call investors that kept us here in san francisco and goes to the front office comprised of men and women dedicating their lives to this team and goes to baseball operations and the fierce -- the fierce, the ferocious drive of brian saibian and his staff and the most storied manager in san francisco giants history and his teachers and coaches and on to the training and medical staff, but inevitably it will always draw right on the backs of the men who have numbers on their backs. it's up to them to forge together a chemistry that allows them to believe in one another and this they did. this they did. and with sergio romo threw the last pitch in the 2012 season and he struck out miguel cabriara this group in one pitch they justified -- they justified that expectation, and now they stand before you today humbly stand before you today, and their accomplishment has matched the verrossity of your adoring devotion. no other way to say it and to allow them to plant a plag and once again they can say it loudly "we are the giants. we are san francisco, and we are the world champions"
public sector so that's my proposal to create jobs in san francisco. >> mr. rogers. >> i like that one. you know i think that the gross revenue tax is a progressive tax and that tax would allow new businesses, small businesses able to flourish so we have something to look forward to with that. that being said treasure island seems to me a car dependent project and unless you have a ferry that is going there and dropping you off, but that would be somewhat time consuming. the same is true with hunter's point and the problem is there isn't a lot of transportation near there. the trances bay terminal next to bart, next to cal train this is a great project and has so much commuter friendly things going on there, and as far as i am concerned when it comes to development in san francisco it's got to stop. >> all right. thank you sir. >> there are three parts of the economy, the consumer, the investment and the government. the only reason thing that has grown on a rapid rate is the government. the government gets their revenues through taxation or borrowing money. the problem i
definitely looking forward to it being built and getting jobs to union families in san francisco. also we need to have the project done so if everybody has been following the warriors the time this project is done we will be raising a world championship banner. let's get it done. >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon. i want to speak behalf of chinese citizen alliance. and want to keep it short. so i live in san francisco for many years. i love this city. it think it is important for san francisco to have its team. i heard golden state warriors was once played in san francisco. i think it is time to bring them back home. in addition, i think it is a good idea to use the portland because otherwise it would be unused. finally good for small business and opportunities for collecting tax revenue. therefore i really hope we can move forward with this project. thank you. please hold the microphone to you. >> supervisors, may i ask -- have permission to be her interpreter. >> absolutely. >> she speaks in chinese. >> we will have two minutes for conversation and two minutes for the interpret

[ applause ] >> thank you, very much. mayor lee and thank you very much everyone. i think that we are ready now
that always amazed me from a distance is the fact that san francisco has never had a world class multi-purpose arena. there's no city half itself size in america that doesn't have this and as a result many world class acts bypass san francisco. we will now have a place for the family shows, those concerts and performances and to date we haven't had a location for. one of our mostarden supporters and the san francisco convention bureau, sf travel. they see this project as filling a distinct void in the city's portfolio thattee can make available for conventions and meetings and events in our city. very important. we will make a promise with jobs and 1700 permanent positions and over 4,000 other jobs and aggressive hiring and business commitments new economic engine for this part of our city. we will create massive economic benefits. jenn just ran through those. 10 to 20 million annual direct tax few revenue to the city. over $50 million of one time impact fees and 60 million annually in new visitor spending. all of that again without any money from the city's general fund or any

'm running for supervisor in district five. san francisco faces the challenges for improve the liefps of the people that live here. we need leadership to meet our challenges and address homelessness and build affordable housing and build the schools and keep us safe. i am running for supervisor to keep san francisco real. our city is a social, economic and political cross roads. in so many ways, the every-day people that keep this city special, the artists, the students, the young families, the seniors on fixed income, working people and every day people of all strides are having a harder and harder time surviving much less thriving in our city. one of the reasons is that our economic development policies are currently much too focused on the big business interest. we need to reorient our city's development policies to focus on the 80 percent of the economy which is our small businesses or mom and pop shops. san francisco needs to develop more affordable housing. the association of bay government says that they need 18,000 new units of housing and we are nowhere close to that. prop c,

but affordable housing for people in san francisco with average incomes. we also need to improve muni and public transportation as well as improve public safety. with affordable housing, i would like to see us actually negotiate projects that build housing that is affordable, rather than allowing developers to pay a fee in lieu of building housing that is less expensive. sustainable housing is just as important as private profit and we need to balance those two in a better way. i also support test moratorium on condo conversions. when we convert the condos the price of that property is permanently increased and we can't get it back and so we need to come up with creative ways to keep the housing affordable. we approved $26 million to muni and yet all of that money, not one penny of it was spent on services it all went to other departments such as when the police closed down the streets for parades. we need to make sure that money is used for service and not distributed to some other department. i work with the community to improve public safety, through community policing and maybe some substati
